FOR THE CHEF
“Some hosts send you off with a goody bag. For years, I’ve loved to give a panini press. It’s ideal for toasting all kinds of sandwiches—and delighting guests.” – Oprah
b. Cuisinart Air-fryer toaster oven
“A toaster oven that bakes, broils, toasts, and has a built-in air fryer? What else can you ask for?”
c. Gourmia Frozen Dessert Maker
“We have a winner! In goes the frozen fruit, out comes silky sorbet. Did I mention that frozen berries and bananas equal zero Weight Watchers points, that the price is amazing, and that I make a soft-serve treat every night?”
“How gorgeous is this Italian handblown cruet set? Just be sure to fill the bottles with really nice oil and vinegar before gifting.”
“Herbs were not my friend. Oh, I could grow them, but they always went yucky in the fridge. Those days are over! This clever preserver keeps things miraculously fresh for up to two weeks. Just don’t forget to present it with a bundle of flavorful greens.”
f. Montes Doggett Server Tray S
“These wood cheese boards have enough space for bread, figs, grapes, and whatever else you’d find in a 17th-century Dutch still life. They’re masterpieces!”
“I weigh everything because I want to have a feel for what an ounce really looks like—it’s crucial for anyone trying to be meticulous about their eating. If knowledge is power, then this makes for one powerful present.”
“I used to have copper pots hanging in my kitchen, but the thought of the cleanup kept me from actually using them. These are lined in easy-to-wash stainless steel—dinner party, here we come!”
FOR THE FOODIE
a. Caroline’s Cakes Cakes
“According to Gayle, Caroline’s Cakes is famous for its caramel cake, but one bite of the seven-layer coconut cake takes me right back to Sunday afternoons in Mississippi, with my grandmother in the kitchen cracking eggs and shaving fresh coconut.”
b. Clif Family Preserves
“These three seasonal preserves are the most outstanding trio since Destiny’s Child. I’ve been enjoying the pluot with lavender and peach all year, and I’m so excited to try the strawberry with lavender.”
“What do you get when two culinary geniuses come together? True chocolate bliss, courtesy of the world-class chef Thomas Keller and the renowned olive oil producer Armando Manni. This set has a pure, antioxidant-rich dark chocolate bar; a milk chocolate one; and two dark-milk chocolate blends.”
“These need to be sipped and seen. The canisters are as elegant as it gets. As for the organic loose-leaf teas: Canyon Chai and caffeine-free, fair-trade Hindu Holiday are spiced with cardamom, ginger, and rose petals.”
“I took the truffle and rosemary sea salt out of my bag at a restaurant, and the waiter asked, “You travel with that?” I said, “Do you have it here?” It wouldn’t be Favorite Things without truffles!”
“Goodbye, cluttered cheese platter: Here are three knives in one. The sharp edge cuts cleanly through firm cheese, the pointy tip breaks an aged cheese into shards, and the entire blade spreads soft cheeses. I’d give this with a ripe wedge of something delicious.”
“Bring this beautifully packaged organic pure Vermont maple syrup to your holiday dinner. It looks like a classy bottle of wine—but tastes much better with pancakes.”
“I’ve given away hundreds of these crunchy yet fluffy artisanal English muffins from Napa just to say “happy Sunday.” I travel with them and even brought a batch to the set of A Wrinkle in Time.”
“You’ve heard of the catch of the day. Well, Harbour Trading Co. ships its catch of the week, plus all the ingredients necessary for an amazing dinner for two or four, along with a QR code that leads to the fisherman’s location, bio, and method.”
